The number of female college students who offer sexual services to earn money is growing.
One-fourth of the workers in the sex business in the Czech Republic is University student.
A survey, carried out by the group Bliss without Risk (a group which gives support to sex workers) on 985 female university students, showed that the 28% of them have had paid sex or sex for gifts, has worked for sex lines or erotic chats, has been an escort or an erotic masseur.
The motivation is mostly one: money. Life as a student is not easy, there are always extra expenses so most of them want to find a part time job. But wages are not always able to cover all the costs (especially the rent), so students contact agencies to find a well-paid job to maintain the studies.
Some of them have such big earnings from this work that decide to leave university and become a full time sex worker: incomes can reach more than 20,000 CZK, or even 100,000 per week if they decide to work abroad, for example in Britain, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Sweden or even the United Arab Emirates, where earnings are definitely higher.
